Lisa Thoughts : Some short peeks at some great series, A Gift For Gus was a great fun book and a cake made in a cup was a favorite of mine. I have tried many of the cup recipes on the web and my son is a big fan of them. So perfect for an afternoon read, This set of books is a great holiday read & bargain.   Lisa

  2. Hi, Lisa – Thank you for having us on your blog! I tried something new with low-temp baking apples before adding them to spice cupcakes, and topping them with cinnamon frosting. The cupcakes are mentioned in Dying for Spice Tea: A Beach Tea Shop Short Story, and the recipe is available in the free bonus. I love the idea of a food blog, and yours looks terrific!


  3. Thanks, Lisa. Hope your readers enjoy my IIRISH TEXAS CHILI as much as enjoyed writing it. Also, the chili is darn good. Had to sample it, you know. The other stories in this collection are also first rate, as is every HAPPY HOMICIDES book.


  4. I have to confess, I haven’t tried a cake in a cup recipe before but it looks so easy, I’m determined to try. Thank you for feature the Happy Homicides 6:Cookin’ Up Crime anthology. I hope I can change at least one person’s poor opinion of fruitcake. Done right it is criminally good! All best!
